About Chez Foushee

It’s pronounced foo-SHAY.

Chez Foushee is located on the corner of E. Grace Street & Foushee Street. Foushee Street is named after Richmond’s first mayor, William Foushee, whose surname was likely pronounced with a French inflection during his time. But over the years, the shay has evolved into shee, as it has for the restaurant’s name. Andrew & Dennis passed the baton to Whitney Cardozo retiring after 28 years of unwavering hospitality.

We answer to both foo-SHAY & foo-SHEE, and we look forward to seeing you for another 28 years!

It is wonderful to know the current ownership has maintained and improved on the standards of Chez Foushee. The staff is attentive and enjoyable too. I would definitely suggest others to dine here.

We had a lovely time. The food was very good. My only objection was too many bones in my trout. Dessert and Onion soup appetizer were outstanding. Very good but not over-the-top wine list. Service was impeccable.

Food was excellent and service was unrushed (they weren’t trying to turn the table over quickly).

We were completely delighted with this special New Year’s Eve dinner. And, we rarely give such glowing reviews The flavors and presentation were exceptional. We did not expect so much flavor from the beef entree. In fact, it surpassed many , much more expensive steak restaurants. We live in Washington DC area, but will definitely return whenever we are in Richmond.

Wonderful gem in downtown Richmond. Very elegant space with classic architectural details. Wait staff warm and friendly. Food excellent; great bar and wine list. Delicious asparagus quiche with salad--perfect portions and flavors. I have dined here many times, and never tire of returning.

I loved my shrimp and risotto with creole sauce. My wife was somewhat less enamored of the scallops although she thought they were pretty good. Our guests also liked their dishes but didn’t rave about them. The restaurant is very lovely. Service was a bit slow but very friendly. We recommend Chez Foushee.

Elegance, warmth & great meals. The ambiance at Chez F is great. A fairly quiet restaurant. Helpful, friendly, but not intrusive staff. Not the largest menu in town, but the three dishes my 2 companions & I had were all top rate.

None of my friends who were with me had ever been, but our meal and experience was so superb that two of them said that we needed to come back there again. We meet once a month at different places around town, and your restaurant just got launched into our top tier. Both quiches were just superb. Thank you for another wonderful meal!

Our dinner was delicious, but a bit pricey. The only issue we had was the strong smell of the bouquet of Lillie’s on the bar, which permeated the first and second levels. Lillie’s do not belong in a restaurant!!

There was a part time gentleman who helped with the service. He made the experience excellent. Our waitress was just ok and got our check wrong. He went out of his way to take care of us when he noticed how long it was taking for service and the food. The duck breast and filet were excellent! We would come again, just leave more time.

I am shocked that this place is not more crowded on a Friday night. The service was excellent and I love the options on the menu. I had the French onion soup and steak frites which were very good and my husband had the brussel salad and shrimp creole which was delicious! We will definitely be back soon!

Loved CF! From the casual elegance, to Russell’s impeccable attention to our table, we had a fabulous brunch. The fried oysters were light; the charcuterie plate was spot on; the french onion soup, chesapeake eggs benedict, traditional eggs benedict, and duck confit were all magnific!! If that wasn’t good enough, the gluten free chocolate cake was the perfect ending to a Sunday funday!

Great food, great wine, and excellent service in a charming atmosphere. Only complaint was the portion size. Delicious food but we wanted more of it. Even so, we recommend Chez Foushee very highly and look forward to going back.

Jason was an attentive and knowledgeable server whose recommendations were very much appreciated. The warm salad with Brussel sprouts, blue cheese and bacon was divine! I have even attempted to replicate it! Truly, every course was mouth watering and the bottle of Cabernet paired beautifully with everything!
